Abstract
The world is constantly changing, and each day brings with it a new set of challenges. Salaried Class are not immune to the various other effects of changing tides, and as such, preparing for the uncertainty of the unknown future is a priority in order to avoid surprises that can wash everything once held dear away. It is no coincidence that investing in something that will assist one in preparing for an uncertain future is critical. This study aims to establish why government bonds can be considered a safe haven for investment for the salaried class in Zambia. A survey of the literature provided direction for the research questions that guided the development of the interview protocol. Participants included 40 respondents aged between 25 and 55.
